Is it possible to selectively Game Pause?

Hi there.

I’ve been trying to render a character with an animation inside my UMG widget menu and it works. I simply spawn my character with a render target and have it play the animation on begin play, but the game needs to be unpaused or otherwise the character won’t be playing the animation.

Is it possible to pause the game for all classes except one or something? That way I would be able to solve the problem.
